Retirement benefits

For members who retired from one or more of our defined benefit plans, PEBA deposits your monthly benefit payment into your bank account on the last business day of each month. The taxable portion of your monthly benefit is subject to federal and state income taxes. PEBA mails an IRS Form 1099-R to each annuitant recipient every year at the end of January. You may access your Form 1099-R at any time by logging in to Member Access. For information on taxes, visit the Internal Revenue Service and the South Carolina Department of Revenue or the website for the tax agency in the state in which you reside.
